    What is the best day (if there is one) and time (if there is such a thing) from LAS. So might AM flights be better than PM. Might there be a particular city(ies) that offer a better opportunity. Especially with SW.

    My guess would be PM flights would be better. A lot of people don't like leaving Vegas early because they feel like they're losing a day in Vegas. However, due to the way airlines are basically making sure they have completely full flights, then you could potentially be bumped anytime you want if you're wanting to volunteer for it. As for day, I have no idea.

    Our flight about a year ago was oversold from Vegas to Denver. It was a mid to late morning flight. They had oversold by two passengers. We volunteered to be bumped and gave us credit for the trip amount home plus $300. We were on the next flight to Denver. Of course, we didn't get good seats as we went to the end of the C seating. It was worth it, because we were able to fly to San Diego for our vacation last June for free!!!

    Monday, Feb 10 they were looking for volunteers. They were offering $804 for each of us and the next flight was in 3 hours. It was a flight from LAS to Milwaukee, with continuing service to Boston. We were going to MKE.

    Anyway, after I found my wife and she agreed to take the bump, I got back to the desk and they already had enough volunteers. Now the funny thing is when the plane finally left LAS, there were 3 empty seats on it. Maybe more, but that is what I could see from my seat in row 9.
